The Good Shepherd and His Sheep
“Very truly I tell you Pharisees, anyone who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber. The one who enters by the gate is the shepherd of the sheep. The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice. But they will never follow a stranger; in fact, they will run away from him because they do not recognize a stranger’s voice.” Jesus used this figure of speech, but the Pharisees did not understand what he was telling them.
Therefore Jesus said again, “Very truly I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep. All who have come before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep have not listened to them. I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. The hired hand is not the shepherd and does not own the sheep. So when he sees the wolf coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away. Then the wolf attacks the flock and scatters it. The man runs away because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep.
“I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me— just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—and I lay down my life for the sheep. John 10:1-15 (New International Version)
This is the second time this year that I had a different plan for the LightWing Messages, and other events have taken precedence over such transitory planning. This Sunday follows upon the heels of the Supreme Court decision to abolish the federal government’s support of abortion. I was not sure such a day would come, not for lack of faith, but for the knowledge of the political arena and the threats and visible demonstration of violence from the senseless mob. Yet, in the wake of this historic decision, our Sunday edition is now devoted to issues regarding the striking down of Roe v. Wade. There are, of course, other issues, and the one I had prepared for today is included as an article we link to that was posted in Canada Free Press in case readers may be interested in the history of the invasion of South Korea on June 25, 1950.
The Citizen Sentinels Network has fought for the abolition of abortion in this nation for quite some time. Several of our writers have written and railed on this issue again and again. So, our position is clear, and we applaud the exemplary courage of the Supreme Court justices despite the frenzied legislators and their militant arm they will no doubt incite to greater frenzy. There is much disinformation surrounding this Supreme Court decision and if one is to safely navigate the political hyperbole and propaganda, one has to take time to wade through the good, the bad, and the ugly reporting.
Our featured LightWing Message today is from Mother Teresa of Calcutta, who delivered a moving message to the United States’ Supreme Court 28 years ago. Only now, has America come to a point where it must reconcile its crimes. At least the judicial branch of the American government can end the federal this aspect of legalized crimes that have been committed in the name of “We the People.” But, even though this may be considered a turning point, comparable in our history of the repudiation of the Dred Scott decision, there is a greater road to a reversal of the mindset that approves of, permits, and promotes the killing of unborn babies in a United States that is deeply divided and severely stagnated by a culture of corruption and death that has been allowed to fester and metastasize throughout this nation.
This turning point could lead to a new beginning if Americans who care would show they care rather than cower or remain complacent or complicit in such a culture of corruption. The faith community needs to arise and put their faith into practice in such a time as this. The Supreme Court Decision on Friday should signal a new beginning rather than the end of a righteous fight. Take time to read, view and review our messages today.
We hope our readers would consider the messages in this Sunday edition relevant or meaningful and if readers know others who might value them as well, consider becoming a Light Wing messenger and please pass this newsletter on to those whom you feel could welcome it. Or simply, please receive it yourselves. May God bless all of our readers and all loved ones.
Mother Teresa’s 1994 Message to the Supreme Court on Abortion
Mother Teresa of Calcutta was canonized yesterday (this was posted in Public Discourse on 9/5/2016) by Pope Francis. In 1994, she submitted an amicus brief, filed by her counsel Robert P. George, pleading with the U.S. Supreme Court to reverse its decision in Roe v. Wade.
I hope you will count it no presumption that I seek your leave to address you on behalf of the unborn child. Like that child I can be considered an outsider. I am not an American citizen. My parents were Albanian. I was born before the First World War in a part of what was not yet, and is no longer, Yugoslavia. In many senses I know what it is like to be without a country. I also know what it is like to feel an adopted citizen of other lands. When I was still a young girl I traveled to India. I found my work among the poor and the sick of that nation, and I have lived there ever since.
Since 1950, I have worked with my many sisters from around the world as one of the Missionaries of Charity. Our congregation now has over four hundred foundations in more than one hundred countries, including the United States of America. We have almost five thousand sisters. We care for those who are often treated as outsiders in their own communities by their own neighbors—the starving, the crippled, the impoverished, and the diseased, from the old woman with a brain tumor in Calcutta to the young man with AIDS in New York City.
A special focus of our care is mothers and their children. This includes mothers who feel pressured to sacrifice their unborn children by want, neglect, despair, and philosophies and government policies that promote the dehumanization of inconvenient human life. And it includes the children themselves, innocent and utterly defenseless, who are at the mercy of those who would deny their humanity. So, in a sense, my sisters and those we serve are all outsiders together. At the same time, we are supremely conscious of the common bonds of humanity that unite us and transcend national boundaries.
In another sense, no one in the world who prizes liberty and human rights can feel anything but a strong kinship with America. Yours is the one great nation in all of history that was founded on the precept of equal rights and respect for all humankind, for the poorest and weakest of us as well as the richest and strongest. As your Declaration of Independence put it, in words that have never lost their power to stir the heart:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness…”
A nation founded on these principles holds a sacred trust: to stand as an example to the rest of the world, to climb ever higher in its practical realization of the ideals of human dignity, brotherhood, and mutual respect. Your constant efforts in fulfillment of that mission, far more than your size or your wealth or your military might, have made America an inspiration to all mankind.
It must be recognized that your model was never one of realized perfection, but of ceaseless aspiration. From the outset, for example, America denied the African slave his freedom and human dignity. But in time you righted that wrong, albeit at an incalculable cost in human suffering and loss of life. Your impetus has almost always been toward a fuller, more all-embracing conception and assurance of the rights that your founding fathers recognized as inherent and God-given. Yours has ever been an inclusive, not an exclusive, society. And your steps, though they may have paused or faltered now and then, have been pointed in the right direction and have trod the right path. The task has not always been an easy one, and each new generation has faced its own challenges and temptations. But in a uniquely courageous and inspiring way, America has kept faith.
Yet there has been one infinitely tragic and destructive departure from those American ideals in recent memory. It was this Court’s own decision in Roe v. Wade (1973) to exclude the unborn child from the human family. You ruled that a mother, in consultation with her doctor, has broad discretion, guaranteed against infringement by the United States Constitution, to choose to destroy her unborn child. Your opinion stated that you did not need to “resolve the difficult question of when life begins.”
That question is inescapable. If the right to life in an inherent and inalienable right, it must surely exist wherever life exists. No one can deny that the unborn child is a distinct being, that it is human, and that it is alive. It is unjust, therefore, to deprive the unborn child of its fundamental right to life on the basis of its age, size, or condition of dependency. It was a sad infidelity to America’s highest ideals when this Court said that it did not matter, or could not be determined, when the inalienable right to life began for a child in its mother’s womb.
America needs no words from me to see how your decision in Roe v. Wade has deformed a great nation. The so-called right to abortion has pitted mothers against their children and women against men. It has sown violence and discord at the heart of the most intimate human relationships. It has aggravated the derogation of the father’s role in an increasingly fatherless society. It has portrayed the greatest of gifts—a child—as a competitor, an intrusion, and an inconvenience. It has nominally accorded mothers unfettered domination over the independent lives of their physically dependent sons and daughters. And, in granting this unconscionable power, it has exposed many women to unjust and selfish demands from their husbands or other sexual partners.
Human rights are not a privilege conferred by government. They are every human being’s entitlement by virtue of his humanity. The right to life does not depend, and must not be declared to be contingent, on the pleasure of anyone else, not even a parent or a sovereign. The Constitutional Court of the Federal Republic of Germany recently ruled that “the unborn child is entitled to its rights to life independently of acceptance by its mother; this is an elementary and inalienable right that emanates from the dignity of the human being.” Americans may feel justly proud that Germany in 1993 was able to recognize the sanctity of human life. You must weep that your own government, at present, seems blind to this truth.
I have no new teaching for America. I seek only to recall you to faithfulness to what you once taught the world. Your nation was founded on the proposition—very old as a moral precept, but startling and innovative as a political insight—that human life is a gift of immeasurable worth, and that it deserves, always and everywhere, to be treated with the utmost dignity and respect. I urge the Court to take the opportunity presented by the petitions in these cases to consider the fundamental question of when human life begins and to declare without equivocation the inalienable rights which it possesses.
St. Teresa of Calcutta founded the Missionaries of Charity, a religious order devoted to serving the poor. She received the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of her work "in bringing help to suffering humanity."

The “Message of Light” endeavor had been part of the “David Project” that originated as a genuine inspiration from our Heavenly Father, initiated to bring Light into the dark in this time. The project developed from 2018, and as we approach our third anniversary of existence, we have formally elevated the “David Project” to the more formal “LightWing Mission,” my personal ministry, which I had announced in previous messages.
These messages are freely offered and sent to you as part of the “LightWing Mission.” Please receive today’s messages as a gift from those who care. They are only words being offered, freely; yet, some contain a deep message of faith, or a much deeper expression of heart that readers can hopefully receive into their lives. As it has been written: “Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.” Proverbs 29:18 - KJV
May we, who are called by His name, approach our Father in Heaven in humility and truly repent for our complicity with wrongdoing. May we seek His heart of forgiveness and His mercy for our inaction. May we seek His mind and may we all turn away from our wicked ways. May we seek to build His Kingdom we’ve been told to seek, and His righteousness. May we grab hold of the ideals we say we believe in and manifest love in our families, as well as in our communities more vibrantly and vitally than ever before.
